Roberto De Zerbi tipped to be the new head coach at Liverpool

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Roberto De Zerbi has had a successful stint with the English club since his move in September 2022.

Roberto De Zerbi could replace Klopp as Liverpool Next Manager

The Italian manager was disappointed with the club’s business in the January window, as he wanted several players to add more depth to the squad that competed in the Europa League this season.

De Zerbi has expressed his frustrations after their 4-0 defeat at the hands of Roma ended their European dreams and he may now be tempted to make a move in the summer.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp announced he would be leaving Anfield at the end of this campaign and Roberto de Zerbi was one of the names immediately placed into the discussion.

Xabi Alonso, who has been consistently linked with Liverpool could be a struggle to appoint this summer and De Zerbi has a real chance of landing the Liverpool managerial role according to club legend Graeme Souness.

“You look at Liverpool at the end of the season and you get that job, what a dream job that is,” Souness told TalkSport.

“Will he [De Zerbi] be in the frame? Yeah, because of the brand of football he plays, that will be attractive to people. Is Alonso the favourite? I believe he’s talking to Bayern Munich.”

Will Roberto de Zerbi stay at Brighton next season?

The Seagulls are under no pressure to let the Italian leave this summer who’s under contract until 2026. Any clubs interested in signing him would have to trigger the £11m release clause to get the deal sanctioned.

Earlier in January, the 44-year-old manager remained coy when he was asked for an update on a potential new Brighton contract.

De Zerbi has also been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Barcelona due to his explosive start to life in England, and his frustrations with the Brighton hierarchy could lead to an immature exit in the summer.
